Great app. The one super annoying thing -why no shortcut for rematch with the player, that you just finished playing?! It only makes sense. You have to type the whole name, and sometimes you can't even find the simbols they are using in their names. Yes, it does have an option for previous opponents, but not the one that you just finished playing. and most of the time, that is the one you want to play right away, usually if you lost. 😁

One of the best games on there with a beginner mode that teaches how to play the game. I've never played chess before and now I'm addicted. Very little ads, which is nice considering how many other games have more ads than play time. Eventually, I will buy the ad free version just to support this company and to say thanks for not being an ad machine.

Good chess game. The ads are super aggressive. I have to shut down the app and then open it to get rid of the ads. Many times I have been tempted to delete this app because the advertisement will not allow me to close it and play the chess game. Advertisements are very controlling. Very sad these advertisements are in control. Can not close the advertisement. It is a great chess game. My dilemma is to put up with the super aggressive ads or find another chess game.

Sorry for your ad experience. Popup ad between games (so it doesn't disrupt play) is designed to be skippable after 5 seconds with fast forward or "x". If fast forward disappears, tap ad where it was. Please report any problem cases to Paid version has no ads.
